    Are there any specific AMD gfx card tricks in order to get the maximum fps from this game?

    Thanks.

    What a trick! :p

    No, my 7970@1170/1600 should be enough.

    I dunno then. I run an R9 280X and it has plenty FPS.

    - Try lowering shadows quality. Definitely turn off shadow blur.
    - Make sure VSync is OFF.
    - Lower anti-aliasing settings in CCC.

    Regarding the anti-aliasing, I use the level4 from the GSC config, is it good or not? is it better to switch it off and create a profile in the CCC?

    Use 2 or 3, and make sure VSync is off everywhere, in CCC and in-game.

    How many FPS do you have at night, on race start?

    No idea, but I do know it has never been a problem so much that I have needed to check how much it is. In other words, no stutters, which is the only time you need to look at improving FPS. ;)

    The night races are really a frame killer
    vsync off, capped@60fps.
    Day race no problem, smooth as butter
    night race (for example, start at last position with Camaro @ Spielberg) -> 35fps
    but when you leave the pack or when the cars are far, the fps go up to 60fps...

    maybe this:
    • Night races give a big fps loss
    Open your prl file with notepad++ (right click) located inC:\GSC2013\UserData\YOURNAME
    Find the line 277 and correct it like this : Max Headlights="10" . You can try lower values.
